Near the small island Ovk, which is located near the coast
France, photographer Georg Robertson captured an amazing phenomenon –
clear squares on the water. And he himself at this time is in

The author of these pictures, which appeared on the Internet, explained that he

in advance, get around, then break out of these creepy square waves, if
man turned out to be in them, simply unthinkable.
Most tourists who visit this “paradise marine

to the advice of local residents who warned about it in advance.

due to the fact that the island is a rescue helicopter.
However, he arrived in the very last moment. Few seconds
later – and we would not see all these pictures …
By the way, independent researchers do not agree with the conclusions of scientists,
that square waves form at the junction of warm and cold
currents. This is not confirmed either in the laboratory or
other places on the planet where meetings of water
streams do not form anything like this. Another mystery of the planet …
